The Struggle

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

In the struggle, we find our grit, our resolve, our resilience, our heart, our spirit, our very soul. Clarity shows itself in our darkest days and draws us to lighter ones. A life that is truly lived is not easy and it is astoundingly beautiful at the same time.

So if we decide we are vested and committed to life, we push through, we get up, we cry hard, we physically ache, without fear or restraint. Laughter, gratitude and hope return and we will join them when the time is right.

“We all hope for breakthrough rebirth moments.” – Dane Cook

The whole of life is found in both joy and sorrow. Do not rush or dismiss either, each is integral to growth and fruition. So do not avoid the struggle or assume that it is permanent.

Each one of us is struggling with something, whether apparent or hidden. Be kind and gentle. Love carries us in this life and draws us to the next.
